Obama Picks Porn Industry Lawyer for No. 2 Spot at Justice Department


By: Jim Kouri, CPP

President Obama has made a major mistake and put America’s families at risk by selecting David Ogden to become Deputy Attorney General, says Fidelis, a pro-family organization.

“David Ogden is a hired gun from Playboy and the ACLU. He can’t run from his long record of opposing common sense laws protecting families, women, and children. The United States Senate has a responsibility to the American people to insure that Mr. Ogden’s full record is fully reviewed before any vote on his nomination,” said Brian Burch, President of Fidelis. Ogden’s confirmation hearing is scheduled for Thursday before the Senate Judiciary Committee.

“Ogden’s record is nothing short of obscene. He has represented Playboy Enterprises in multiple cases, Penthouse Magazine, the ACLU, and the largest distributor of hard-core pornography videos. He has opposed filters on library computers protecting children from Internet smut, and successfully defended the right of pornographers to produce material with underage children.”

“David Ogden has collected checks from Playboy and Penthouse to fight any attempts to establish filters on federally-funded public libraries. Ogden even sued the federal government in an attempt to publish Braille versions of Playboy magazine — at taxpayer expense, of course,” said Burch.

As a lawyer in private practice, Ogden has argued for an unlimited abortion license, gays in the military, and has urged courts to treat traditional definitions of marriage as a social prejudice.

“A vast majority of Americans support parental notification before a minor’s abortion and protecting kids from Internet pornography in our libraries,” continued Burch. “Yet David Ogden has fought tooth and nail against these common sense laws protecting our children from harm. At a time when America’s families are under increasing assault, Mr. Ogden is a dangerous choice for a position whose responsibilities include the enforcement of our nation’s laws.”

A review of his writings and briefs shows that Ogden believes that judges should rely more on social science when making decisions. And that they should rely less on “original intent” of the framers of the US Constitution and more on international law. He also believe judges — including US Supreme Court justices –should be compassionate and not impartial arbiters.

“To say that Ogden is a liberal-left activists is an understatement. His record speaks volumes about President Obama’s leftist leanings,” said political strategist Mike Baker.
